I checked with MalwareBytes 3.6.1 and no issues were detected.
Let me know if in the future any notifications are displayed.
OK thanks for the details.
I will check and contact them
Forgot to mention it is the Premium (paid for) and not the free version which
is a lot slimmed down from my version.
Component package 1.0.463
Definitions 1.0.7039. This auto updates when loading program so as near as
I can give you. (Now reports a later version as updated very often
(quite a few times a day).
Can get round issue by adding the reported file to the exclusions list.
I assume the 'PUP' is not a virus as such but Malwarebytes treats it as not trusted
and unwanted. The clue is in the name PUP = Potentially Unwanted Program.
Maybe Malwarebytes is being a shade too aggressive in dealing with your program.
Only just had the issue with last 3.6.1 version. So maybe you can contact them
explaining yours is a perfectly normal program file that should not be considered as a 'PUP'
Malwarebytes after version 3 initial release has been subject to many updates mainly to solve
numerous bugs that have been annoying users a great deal!!
Here are the latest links (3-4 hours old)
No issues even with Malwarebytes.
Any chance you can check and tell me the date/time of the virus definitions?
thanks for letting me know.
My latest virustotal reports do not show any issues.
Will investigate and write back.
Just updated Malwarebytes from 3.5.1 to 3.6.1 latest version and now it blocks Webdownloader
by not allowing running of WebdownloaderWpf.exe identifying it as a 'PUP'
(Potentially Unwanted Program). As it is widely used you may want to contact them to
correct this issue. I have disabled it in the very short term but not a solution
I can live with for long.
